The Best of 2012!

I want to apologise for the fact that this is really late! My laptop broke so I haven't been able to put it up! But eventually, here are the products I loved in 2012!

The best foundation
Mac Face And Body - You can read a full review here but in short, this foundation is great for my dry skin, buildable coverage and doesn't break me out like so many other foundations! Hoorah!

The best concealer
Collection (2000) Lasting Perfection Concealer - This stuff is just amazing and it's so cheap! I'm on my third one! It is amazing for under the eyes and on blemishes, doesn't dry my skin out and is just amazing!

The best powder
L'oreal True Match Powder - This is my absolute favourite powder and I have used about 5 of these! I love that it adds a bit more coverage on top of your foundation, it's not really powdery so your skin looks dry. I really like a matte finish, which can be hard to achieve on my skin without it looking insanely dry!

The best highlighter
MAC MSF Soft and Gentle - I think you're probably bored of me going on about this! I absolutely love it, it's not too glittery, it just adds the perfect shimmer! Review here.

The best blusher
MAC Warm Soul Blush - Read a full review here. This has been one of the only blushers I actually wore in 2012. It is just so natural yet so beautiful on the skin!

Best Contour
Sleek Contour Kit - I tried Hoola by Benefit but found it to be too reddy! This is just natural and works so well on my fair skin!

Best Lipstick
Estee Lauder Crystal Baby - I bought this lipstick ages ago when I got paid for the first time! I use this whenever I want to wear a lipstick but don't want to deal with the hassle! It is really soft and easy to apply, I have really dry lips and this doesn't highlight any of my dryness!

Best Mascara
Soap and Glory Thick and Fast - I really got into Soap and Glory cosmetics in the second half of 2012. I really love their products, especially this mascara! It makes your lashes look super long and super thick without them looking clumpy!

Best Eyeliner
Soap and Glory Supercat - I love using this for doing a bold cat eye! It's perfect! The brush is really precise and perfect for the job!

Best Eyeshadow(s)
MUA Undressed Palette - I loved this in 2012, it has such a great range of shadows. They are super soft and last all day! I could honestly just use this palette!

What products did you love in 2012? I always love to try new products! :)

  18. Great post, and I love how open, honest and candid you are. Don't change a thing! In 2012 I tried a ton of great skin care products and found the fastest way to get rid of acne! I love great facial masks, especially when in the bubble bath with essential oils and candle light. We all need to relax and take good care of our skin.
